Apparently, according to Notebookcheck.net, Apple MacBook Air 2020's can be much brighter than expected.
They benchmarked the laptop and had to switch MacBook Air to Windows 10 to run some tests. When measuring the screen brightness to adjust the battery's reference index, they found that the screen was 32% brighter.
While expecting a value of just over 400 nights in macOS, the benchmarking software showed nearly 550 nits for Windows 10 (First Time Service). Precisely the value for macOS was 415 cd / m², and the value for Windows reached 547 cd / m².
Sounds impossible, right? Not completely. The guys from Notebookcheck.net found that the screen was less color-accurate on Windows 10. Apple may have limited the brightness of macOS from the start just to maintain color accuracy.
They also listed a few other options:  Not all panels achieve the same maximum brightness, so the panel manufacturer could have adjusted the brightness of the panels to deliver comparable products to the customer.
The bottom line is that the MacBook Air 2020 screen on macOS is still extremely light, but if you use it With Windows 10, you'll get a boost of brightness that's not bad at all, right?
